Ashley ~ Together - Card #5

When you get back to Jimmy’s room, he starts telling you his plans.  He thinks you should leave school and work until the baby comes to help with expenses.  He’ll find a job, too.

“We’ll stay with my folks until the baby comes, then we’ll get our own place.  I bet my folks are good for a couple grand, if we play our cards right.”  You pretend to feel excited, but inside you’re filled with dread.

“This is just the beginning, Ash.  We’ve got our whole lives together.  I’m so happy!” Jimmy says.
